    the only negative i see with the Bersa thunder.380,it's about the same size as many compact 9mm's such as the Kahr pm9/cm9,keltec pf9 etc.otherwise,seems to be a great gun..

    True. I've got a PT709 that is about the same size, but the LCPs and similar size guns are too small for my hands and fingers. The Bersa is a very smooth shooter compared to the compact 9s and the LCP sized 380s. A good choice for someone who wants a compact gun that isn't punishing to shoot.

    I noticed he fumbled with the safety a few times. He has rather large hands and that may be the cause. However, I have a 380 thunder cc and when I carry it, I do carry with the safety off as I feel the gun in Da is as safe as a revolver can be. Am I wrong in my thinking or in my practice?

    Great gun.

    That is a stout-looking design. I love simplicity. Although for me, the redeeming value of the .380 is that it fits into an LCP-sized package.

    However, for someone who's hands need something bigger but don't want the recoil, this would seem ideal. My neighbor uses one when he goes to butcher one of his hogs. One shot, every time.

    It's affordable, reliable, light weight, ergonomic, compact, and easy to shoot. You can't fault a 380 in the right hands.

    I've watched a ton of his videos and every time, I'm amazed that he can reach out and hit that gong with every handgun he shoots. It just reminds me that I need to work on my fundamentals more.

    I got my thunder 380 before all the slim small 9mms started coming out. Its a great little gun for what it is. I still carry it on occasion in the summer. Conceals niceley. There probably one of the most underrated pistols on the market.

    My Bersa 380 doesn't get as much range time as it should. But then I have a safe full of guns to chose from to carry and shoot. Might have to take the old girl on a date next time out.

    This is my wife's carry weapon. I carried it a few times. It's a nice gun.
